Happy Monday everyone! I hope you had a good weekend and that you’re rested and ready to take on the week.
My weekend was relaxing and mellow – exactly what I needed. In addition to a couple good naps, I made it out to my favorite bakery in Seattle (I’ve mentioned this place before).
I also saw The Bourne Legacy. I think I would give it about a B-. It was interesting and enjoyable, but definitely lacked a certain something that the old ones had….and yes a big part of that something starts with Matt and ends with Damon. But it still just kind of felt like they were copying the old ones. Oh well.
On Sunday I was ready to bake and in the mood for something simple and comforting. I decided zucchini bread would be perfect for this time of year. Zucchini is a summer squash, but the cinnamon and nutmeg in the recipe bring a hint of autumn.
I found a highly-rated Paula Deen recipe, and I have to say this was the perfect zucchini bread. It was so good. It was dense and moist on the inside, and crunchy on the top.
I didn’t make any alterations to this recipe (besides leaving out the nuts) so I’ll send you straight to the source. It can be found here: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/paula-deen/zucchini-bread-recipe/index.html.
Also, I did have a little trouble getting the loaves out of the pans. The recipe just calls for cooking spray, but it may be wise to grease and flour the pans, and use parchment paper. Good luck!
